Two-Day Symposium on Religious and Political Disagreement

April 20–21, 2017, St. Olaf College

The symposium will feature Robert Benne, Amy Black, Mitri Raheb, and Miroslav Volf. These four distinguished scholars of religion will address issues of religious and political disagreement as they bear on (a) diversity within the Christian community largely considered, (b) differences among evangelical Christians, (c) debates arising out of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and (d) disagreements among the “world religions” (e.g., Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism) and secular perspectives in pluralistic and globalized societies.
